Breaking through the doorways of the independent music industry, Kemical is out to provide his own interpretation of hip-hop with a rock-style attitude and a “grim mentality”. Kemical has been a writer for many years of both music and short stories, and is finally working on building his solo career as a rapper.
Kemical uses his experiences in life to inspire his music; whether it comes from growing up in a poverty-stricken environment in West Michigan, to heartbreak, to unleashing his wrath upon those that have wronged him.
“My lyrics are very real, and very personal,” he said. “I find it surreal when people tell me that they relate to my lyrics in songs such as Last Letter. On one hand it’s awesome that I’m not alone and that I have reached others through my own experiences; on the other it’s almost upsetting to know that others have gone through that. I felt like s*** when I wrote that.”
Kemical prides himself in learning the industry, and having a say in everything directly affecting his music and image. As most independent artists have to do, majority of his advertising is through self-promotion, but he also does all of his graphic design work (including all artwork within his album ‘Deathbed’) by himself.
With no funding except his own pocket, Kemical managed to pay for studio time, engineering and mastering, and print production of his first album which is available now for online download, or hard copy purchase here:
